Re: Newfoundland rain gear
I have hunted NFLD quite a few times. Looking for quality rain gear is a great idea. I have spent entire weeks there where it never quit raining the whole time. If you are anywhere near a Cabelas , GM or Bass Pro Shop, or any other outdoor clothing store for that matter, I would go and try some outfits on and see which you think will be the quietest.
You tend to do a great deal of walking in NFLD and noisy rain gear will get you busted. I use Gore Tex pants and parka but still get wet at times. If it's not all that cold, you usually just tough it out but it still can get kinda miserable. I would not select the rain gear by looking at a catalog or website.
